Storm Summary Rotterdam, NY

I will start with this Incredible Snippit from the Afternoon Forecast Discussion from NWS Albany:

"IT IS RARE TO ACTUALLY VERIFY A HIGH WIND WARNING WITH
MEASURED WIND GUSTS TO 60 MPH OR HIGHER. WE NOT ONLY DID THIS AT
ALBANY INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT WHICH REPORTED A PEAK WIND RIGHT AT 60
MPH...BUT WE DID IT AT MANY OTHER LOCALITIES. STRATTON MOUNTAIN
REPORTED A PEAK WIND GUST OF

143 MPH

...PERHAPS THE HIGHEST WIND EVER
REPORTED IN OUR COUNTY WARNING AREA"




I was at work for most of the event

Our power flickered once then went out completely around 1pm... We eventually closed the store...I work for a local supermarket in Rotterdam, NY...

Damage Report from the Store:

While at work.. one of my fellow co-workers experienced damage to her Van when a Ball that sits atop our flag poll...

http://www.discount-flag-poles.com/ball-large.jpg ...Sort of similar to that .... about 6" in diameter... some form of metal... apparently for lightning... Unscrewed itself and came crashing down onto the hood of her van... luckily only very minor dents...


When Walking home I noticed many limbs down on peoples lawns....


Front itself came through at 10:03am

Temp at 10:02am: 52.9
Temp at 10:27am: 38.3

14.6 degree Drop in 25 mins
